The plugin exposes a single command,
:Modsearch, which modifies the last performed search in a particular way, determined by its argument. For instance, after:
/foobar :Modsearch word
The current search term will now be not
\<foobar\>. You can use the
unword modifier to remove the word limitation.
Currently, the available commands are:
word: Wraps the last search term in word boundaries
unword: Removes word boundaries from the last search term
ignore-syntax-comment: Changes the search to ignore comments
ignore-syntax-string: Changes the search to ignore strings
For the modifiers that ignore comments and strings, bear in mind that the pattern is invalidated if the buffer is changed. That's because they're implemented by specifically excluding particular line/column pairs.
Pull requests are welcome, but take a look at CONTRIBUTING.md first for some guidelines.
